Interview with Leah Dowdy
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love that I get to make people feel understood and less alone.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Florence Welch because she is one of a kind and a musical Goddess.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I first began writing music as an angsty pre-teen as a form of personal therapy. It wasn't until I moved to New York City after college that my business minded roommate asked me why I was hoarding a binder full of songs that I could be monetizing. Since then I have penned lyrics for a number of local musicians and even collaborated on a few overseas projects. I hope to keep elevating my craft and someday hear the lyrics of my songs being sung back to me by 20,000 people at Madison Square Garden. Dream big xx
